British founder Flick, a surfer and sun-worshipper, believed that swimwear is best when simple, beautiful, and sustainable. A self-confessed bikini addict, she came to realise how difficult it was to find swimwear that was not overcomplicated, overpriced or uncomfortable to wear and surf in, let alone that was sustainable. Likewise, many friends often struggled when buying bikinis because they are usually sold as sets and it is rare to be the same size on the top and bottom.
This led to the idea of her own sustainable swimwear label Flickini in 2018, which was officially launched in 2020 after sourcing the best eco-friendly fabrics, perfecting designs & testing all the products. Flickinis are sold as separate pieces, which means you can mix ‘n’ match styles, sizes and colours, leading to a personalised bikini buying experience.
All pieces are made from ECONYL ®, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre that is derived from discarded fishing nets, ocean plastic & other nylon waste. This means that no new resources are needed for our swimwear, and that plastic waste from our oceans is recycled into something beautiful. What’s more, this magic fabric is super soft, ultra-resistant to chlorine & sun cream, and offers UV protection, which makes it a perfect eco-friendly material for swimwear.
As well as swimwear, Flickini offers sustainable accessories which are perfect for beach days, travelling, and everyday use. Our beach towels are made from 100% regenerated cotton, which means no new cotton is used and the fabric is free from chemicals, pollutants and harsh dyes. As well as the environmental benefits of using regenerated cotton, the towels are really soft, lightweight, quick-drying, and they can be folded up to a very convenient size. Our stainless-steel bottles are an everyday necessity and help reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles.
100% eco-friendly packaging: our lovely recyclable mailing bags are made from grass paper by a climate neutral company.
Flickini focuses on offering a wide range of styles, sizes and colours, so as to suit any body type and any skin tone. With a variety of top styles and bottom cuts, there is something for everyone, and the amount of coverage is up to the individual. Empowering women is fundamental to Flickini’s ethos, and we hope that you wear our pieces with pride and confidence, knowing that you have chosen a female-owned sustainable swimwear brand.
Join our Flickini Tribe- a collective of empowered women who support and uplift each other, while slaying in their Flickinis.
